The boy who lived.
I made a last minute decision after work to see the last Harry Potter movie. I went by myself, which is a first for me. I think I'll be going to the movies solo more often. I got my pop corn (which was my dinner, gross I know) and settled in for the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Overall I thought the movie was well done. The pace was much faster than the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and there were some stellar performances. Allen Rickman was amazing as usual. I like the way Snape is portrayed in the movies better than in the books and I think that's due to Allen Rickman's performance. Maggie Smith was also pretty fantastic. "I've always wanted to use the spell".
I cried even though the deaths were expected since I've read all the books. There were a few funny moments though which I wasn't expecting and of course the Ron and Hermione kiss finally. And woah Neville! You were pretty badass in this film.
There were a few details that were left out i.e. no mention of Tonks being pregnant but Harry somehow knows this and Snape dying in the boat house and not in the shrieking shack, but overall I enjoyed the movie.
It's been a fun ride Mr. Potter. Thanks for the memories.
